Paige Reinick, ICS Principal for a day

 

Fourth grader Paige Reineck was all smiles in the hallways Thursday morning as she greeted her students and prepared for her new position, Principal of Immaculate Conception School in Port Clinton (for a day, that is). Paige took to the PA system late in the day on Wednesday to announce the changes she would put into action for the next day. Her no uniforms policy delighted her classmates. In addition, the entire school was treated to pizza for lunch by Principal Reineck. After lunch, Paige felt it was time to relax. The entire student body was invited to the school gym (in their slippers) to watch the new movie Frozen.

Paige spent much of the day on Thursday helping her mentor, Mrs. Connie Snyder, with office tasks and principal duties. Being Principal for a Day was auctioned off at last year’s Immaculate Conception School auction. This year’s auction is April 26 and the theme is “Happy 90th Birthday ICS”, as the school embarks on celebrating its 90th year of providing a faith filled education in Port Clinton. Immaculate Conception School would be so grateful for any donation from the community for this year’s auction. If you have an item you would like to offer to this year’s school auction or are interested in registering at ICS for the upcoming school year, call the school office at 419.734.3315.

Emergency Services Olympics completes two more events

Collin Salyers representing PCFD and Mayor Vince Leone representing PCPD shake hands before their Emergency Services Olympics event.

On Thursday, March 20 representatives from the Port Clinton Police Department and the Port Clinton Fire Department and EMS completed two more events in their Emergency Services Olympics. Nate Edmonds of PCPD went up against Karl Kopchak of PCFD in a basketball tournament and Kopchak of the fire department came out on top. After the basketball tournament, Collin Salyers, representing the PCFD, went up against Mayor Vince Leone, representing PCPD, in a taco eating contest at Lock, Dock and Barrel. It was a close race, but Mayor Leone had 16 tacos to Salyers’ 12.

After a total of three events so far in 2014, the Port Clinton Fire Department and EMS lead the Olympics 2 to 1. The Emergency Services Olympics takes place throughout the year. Service members sign up for events and once an event is full the contest is held.

“It’s a good way to have the departments put their money where their mouth is since they are so competitive,” said organizer Mike Snider. “The only time some of these guys see each other is at an emergency scene. It’s good to build relationships between the departments outside of that atmosphere.”
